The setting is reminiscent of an earlier era, but it’s just a little too perfect and too immaculate with a slightly artificial feel to it.The chairs at the window tables are large and plush but the backs are reclined, so sitting back made me feel like I was being swallowed up, making it awkward to eat. The menu is comforting... More

The Main Dining Room at the Gasparilla Inn is Old Florida at its finest!. The Inn is always beautiful and was especially so with Christmas decorations. We were treated like royalty! Everyone was gracious and accommodating. The food was outstanding. The Black Grouper was delicious. The service was excellent and attentive. It was a wonderful dining experience!

The Gasparilla Inn is an historic icon that has been immaculately restored and maintained. The atmosphere and ambiance is insurmountable while the food is spotty and lacking. I stretched on the 4 star rating because despite the mediocre food, the awesomeness of this magnificent hotel masks some of the shortcomings in the kitchen.

We called before making a reservation, asking about dress code. We were told men need a tie but not a jacket. When we showed up, the officious receptionist told my husband he needed a coat. OK fine, but she and her minions were very rude about it. We were very well dressed but even if we looked like clodhoppers that... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant is classy as it can get, great service, smart and delicious breakfast menu. My smoked salmon was fresh and flavorful, hollandaise sauce on my husband's eggs Benedict was done to perfection. Highly recommend this place for relaxing morning breakfast.

Such, old Florida! The dining room is simply beautiful. Our children loved the cuisine, and so did we. Great selection of wine. Nice to see Diane again this year.

The dining room was lovely, however the food was only OK. Had to send back two dishes, both cold, congealed hollandase and raw duck. Third dish was overcooked pompano, dry - needed a sauce. No apologies for obvsiously not up to par dishes. At a place of this calibre you don't expect to dish your own "pate to go", waiter... More

Breakfast at the Inn's dining room is a must. The food is excellent and service incredible. The dining room itself is beautifully decorated and has wonderful views of the golf course. We sat in oversized chairs at a window table and forgot all the cares in the world.

We love this place and always go when we are at our Florida home. We had my sister with us and we each got a different starter; hubby got the soup, sister got Liver Pate, and I got the shrimp- all were delicious. Next, for salads and we each got a different salad, hubby got the Caesar and it is... More
